Part Time Candidates =Full Time Losers

Its crunch time in this election. If you are a candidate now is the time you should be really hitting the grassroots campaigning really hard.

This means making the campaign for your next job your full-time job.

There are several candidates that are full-timers and several that are part-timers. The incumbents almost have to be part-timers, but the challengers choose to be part-timers. They could take time off or quit their job to run full time if they chose to.

The point I'm making is that if you aren't viewing the campaign as a full time job, don't be surprised if you don't end up getting the job you are seeking.

A few candidates would be much stronger if they put aside their jobs and focused only on campaigning.

You're kidding right? Quit your job to campaign fulltime if you are a challenger, b ut incumbents can campaign full time while drawing their office salary? Talk about locking incumbents in for life.

Sorry Jaime that is BS. Challengers unless they are independently wealthy or own their own business where their time is there own, cannot be expected to abandon their family responsibilities.

I'm sorry Tim, but I don't agree with public employees running for office and maintaining their government jobs. If I were to run for compensated office as a City Employee, I have to quit my job to seek office. It should be a universal rule.

I was speaking about those employed in the private sector. I too think current office holders need to resign to run for another office. Not so sure of government employees - except for government management or decision makers
